You might already know Gaelic Storm from their appearance in James Cameron’s Titanic as the Celtic party band in the ship’s steerage deck. Unlike so many other bands that were unable to sustain a career after receiving near-blinding initial exposure, Gaelic Storm has amassed a large, loyal and ever-growing following since their launch in 1995. After three studio albums on Virgin/EMI early on, the band has since flourished in an extreme DIY fashion by not only launching their own label, Lost Again Records, and releasing their albums themselves but also by designing all their own album art, posters and advertising.

While Gaelic Storm plays Celtic music that hearkens back to the traditional music of Ireland, they are hardly traditionalists, adding modern sounds and drawing influences from American rock and pop as well as music styles from around the world.

Following the path of the band’s 2008 release, What’s The Rumpus?, 2010’s Cabbage debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Chart.
